My Name Is Rachel and I am a Monopoly Addict

Well it has been a while since we have gotten down to a juicy post. I have excuses...however, none of them are any good. I will say that after the whole phone washing incident and the following years months weeks of isolation I have a new found respect for the people who can't sit at a stop light without checking their facebook. I felt like my left arm was gone. Actually I would probably miss my left arm less than I did my Blackberry.

Ok maybe that is a stretch and I certainly mean no disrespect to my fellow left armless friends out there.

Anyway all that is to say it took a while to recover from the depression following the phone withdrawals. Noah downloaded Monopoly to my new phone and I cannot seem to break myself away from it. Right now I am in the middle of a match with Wheelbarrow- Racecar and Battleship have gone bankrupt and since I have $163,000 and Wheelbarrow has $25,000 and we both have tons of hotels I just don't think it is ever going to end. It truly is the never ending monopoly game. AND that folks is about as sporty as I get.

Things are moving right along with the Squires boys. Middle school is slowly killing us. Well, actually not so slowly. Wil made it exactly 3 weeks before he lost his agenda. It was 2 weeks before Noah wouldn't get out of the car because he forgot to use the bathroom before he left home and to quote him "I can't use that bathroom cause that bathroom have germ and that germ make me sick and if I sick I can't go to school so I need go home to go bathroom cause our bathroom have our germ and I already have our germ and our germ not make me sick so take me home". Does that make you as tired as it makes me?

Gabey Baby is in the middle of potty training which means FUN TIMES! His favorite line is "I don't hava go right now" and then exactly 38 seconds later he has an accident. Can I just say I have found the reason that toddler boxers are not the preferred choice of potty training mothers. They don't seem to hold in quite as much as the tighty whities. He has also added his own sound effects to everything he does. If I do say so myself he is extra talented when it comes to shooting laser sounds. He is all boy...until you ask him what his favorite toy is. Just in case you are wondering it is his purse. It is very beautiful. Black with pink and blue designs on it. He puts cars in it and throws any of the other boys to the ground who try to steal it from him. The girls in the class could care less about it. They would much rather play with the dump truck than the purse. 

Baby Olivia is a joy. She is so beautiful and sweet and good. You could take all of the sweetness from all of our boys and Olivia has more! I can't believe what a difference a girl makes.

I have so much to share but all of my creative juices have been sucked up by this never ending monopoly game. Someone please help me.
